8 months


My friend likes to say that C is the second child who should have been born a first child because she wants nothing more than to just be held and snuggled all day long...and who has time to do that with another child running around at home? 


I have to say that for me, though, C was born at just the right time.  I was far too overwhelmed with being a new mom the first time around to appreciate all those baby snuggles.  And I was often more interested in moving on to the next stage than appreciating the one that we were in (mostly because I was hoping that the next stage would mean that I could finally get some sleep!).  But knowing that C is most likely our last little one makes me appreciate the here and now of having her in our family.


I love snuggling up with her at night and petting the soft little hair on her head (yes, I realize that that makes her sound like a cat, but seriously, I do love petting her head). 


I love making her laugh so that I can see that one little tooth in her mouth.  I love when I look back after I walk away from her and I see her crawling, commando-style, after me.  And I love that as sweet as this little baby is, she still has the most bad-ass mean-mugging face. 



We like to say that this is the face that she pulls out when she's not impressed with our awesomeness.  Apparently, she's practicing for her teenage years.

  3. Your two girls are SOO adorable! I, too, was also overwhelmed with my first child, now 26 yrs. old! My son was a little easier, now 23. They grow way too fast!

  4. I love the mean mug! She is just the cutest baby ever (well as cute as O and mine of course). I am glad you are getting to soak up the snuggles!

  8. Oh my goodness. She is ADORABLE (that mugging face is awesome). I feel the same way about my second baby. I spend so much less time freaking out this time, and I can enjoy it so much more. And I love those midnight snuggles so much, ah.
